Hello, it's ME!
Normally, I would not be here at this time of day on a Saturday, BUT again the races were rained out, so here I am! Actually, this is the THIRD time this particular race event has been rained out. I mentioned it several weeks ago, 'The Hooker Hood Classic" which is in memory of Hooker Hood who raced at the track for years. It is rescheduled for next Saturday night. Hopefully, it will not get rained out again.
More vehicle 'woes and worries.' Yesterday, my truck broke down while I was in a drive thru line to pay the telephone bill. I just got it out of the shop for something else (oil pan) on Wednesday. My brother in law swears that particular Tire and Brake business does something to mess up vehicles so they will have to come back in for a return visit (and more $$$$$$ for the business). Something similar happened to him a year or so ago. I did not take it back to that same business for the repairs (steering column) this time. I have my sister's spare vehicle, which is a blessing, and I am considering getting another vehicle once the truck is repaired. It has already cost me about $3,000 in repairs just this year. I can't afford to keep getting it fixed on a part-time fitness instructor's income.
So that is what's going on around here tonight. I hope things haven't been quite so 'out of the ordinary' for any of you. Take care, and have a wonderful SUNDAY!

Not much going on around here today or tonight. It started to rain earlier, but it didn't last very long. There is a 70% chance of rain for tomorrow. That will probably rain out the races for Saturday IF it actually happens. I will have to wait and see. I have a ton of things to keep me busy if the races are canceled, so I won't be bored. Actually, I am never bored because I ALWAYS have a gazillion things that need to be done around the house. I just don't want to do them. Ever feel like that?
Anyway, I hope everyone has a nice Friday and a GREAT WEEKEND.
Take care and HUGS

Thank you all for you comments. I got the truck back today, and it did not cost an 'arm AND a leg,' just an 'arm OR a leg,' but not BOTH.
Other than that, today was an uneventful day other than dealing with all of the normal events that I deal with every day.
Tomorrow is Thursday, my favorite day, and fortunately, it is not filled to the rim with miscellaneous running around and things that I have let pile up on me. Of course it is still a full day, but not an overfilled day.
I hope you ALL have a WONDERFUL THURSDAY!

I took my truck to the shop today for them to fix whatever it takes to stop it from leaking oil. Long story short...They are keeping it overnight. Fortunately, my sister, Kay, has an old Saturn that I borrowed because I have work tonight and tomorrow.
Oh, I am 'ON' to this business which is a national chain. But what do ya do, other than use another company. Well, this place is positioned right next door to the gym where I work on Tues and Thurs mornings, so I can leave it there and walk next door to work. Then if it takes longer than the time I am at the gym, they will take me home and come back and get me when the truck is ready. Since it was getting close to their closing time, I called, and they said they weren't through working on it because they found 'this' and 'that' that needed replaced. HMMMMMM!
Again, what do ya do? Learn more about fixing vehicles I guess.
Out of here to go teach a class. Have a GREAT evening!

Last night was a LOOOOOONG night. It was a BIG race, so there were a LOT of people there, and I was busy, busy, busy. That's OK though because during the times when I am NOT so busy, since I can't see anything from my location, it can get boring.
It was very HOT there, too. I did have a fan in there with me, so it wasn't so bad, but it was really hot on the spectators and drivers. They love it though, so I don't guess the heat bothers them too much. They keep coming back for more.
My normal day today with two classes at the YMCA. No substitute positions this week, but two during the following week.
All of those who went to the Elvis Impersonator's show last night had a GREAT time. I talked to my sister, Shelby, today, and she said it was fun. The same guy who does Elvis, does a gazillion other people. Last night he did Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash, and Elvis. He had a new white suit like the one Elvis wore in his last performances. This guy LOOKS like Elvis and sings like Elvis. He is great! I would have loved to have seen him impersonate the others, too. He will be back there in a few weeks, but again it is on a Saturday night, and I can only go if it rains.
I hope everyone has a GREAT week. I really need to get my truck into the shop for some major work to be done. It is so inconvenient to do that when I can't part with it if I am going to get to and from work. However, I can't get either to or from work if the truck totally breaks down on me, so I have some thinking to do in order to figure out a way to do BOTH. I will, I just haven't got it figured out yet.
HUGS and BLESSINGS to ALL!
